Facilitated by Lisa Jasinski (Trinity), Duane Colthorp (Trinity), Jana Mathews (Rollins), and Hilton Kelly (Davidson)
Recognizing that each college has its own policies, processes, and culture, this session aimed to provide new and incoming department chairs with the opportunity to develop the “mindset” of a successful academic leader. This workshop was directed toward new(ish) department chairs with two years (or fewer) of experience who sought to gain greater awareness of their personal leadership styles and the complex responsibilities of mid-level administration. Through a series of interactive case studies and brainstorming exercises, participants began to identify the skills, dispositions, and resources that will help them thrive in their role.
